Spring washers are intended to provide a malleable spacer with vibration resistant properties.
There are a number of factors that play in the increase in requirement for spring washers, including the effort to down-size end products due to weight and cost as well as when parts require tolerance in their assembly.
Spring washers are generally used within static or dynamic loads. In a static application, the washer retains loads, whereas in a dynamic application, the washer functions as flexing spring.
Duplex stainless steel washers are known for their high yield strength, which is double that of the tempered strength of standard austenitic stainless steels.
It also holds enhanced corrosion resistance, lending itself well to applications involving stress-corrosion cracking and erosion.
